What To Expect

The elephants of Thailand are famous all over the world, and there's no better way to truly have a memorable experience with these gentle giants than a visit to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary in Chiang Mai. Famous for their ethical, no-riding method of giving visitors an experience with these gentle giants, visitors will be able to make unforgettable memories of being a part of their lives. Upon arriving at the sanctuary, visitors are greeted with refreshments and valuable information about the elephants' dietary habits and the good work that the sanctuary does. Visitors will don traditional Karen tribe clothing as their day with the elephants begin, and be able to assist in preparing the elephants' food and feeding it to them. Guests are free to play, interact, and take photos with these elephants, all while being able to learn about how they had come to the sanctuary, their rescue story, and how more elephants could be protected from abusive practices. Fancy some good clean fun? How about a mud spa with the elephants? You'll get to jump in with them and then bathe them in the river afterwards to get them nice and clean. If you like having more time with the elephants, you can opt for the One Day Walk which will let you visit more camps and meet more elephants to spend time with! After a good meal, you'll be easily and safely conveyed back to your hotel, knowing that you have had a truly safe and ethical experience and have contributed to making a difference in the elephants' lives.

    An amazing trip. Unforgettable experience, all set in stunning scenery.
  • Sophia 17 Jan 2019
    Our overall experience went pretty well. Playing with the elephants was a dream come true. I didn’t like that our driver stopped along the way to do personal shopping, which put us a little behind schedule.
  • Ching Yee Aliana 16 Jan 2019
    The arrangement was nice and good. It's a once in a lifetime experience to interact so closely with the elephants. I would recommend this trip to all my friends if they visit Chiang Mai.
  • REINA 15 Jan 2019
    i must say this is the highlight of my trip.. had so much fun playing with the gentle giants.. its a must when visiting thailand :)
  • Kareen 12 Jan 2019
    I super love those elephants. Feeding and bathing them was the most memorable experienced. We’ll come back again and recommend this to my friends! Thank you klook! You did a great job.
  • KAM YUEN TONY 11 Jan 2019
    Very good experience! Tour guides are very nice. We hiked to visit the baby elephant who is only 13 days old! We then go to waterfall, mud spa and bath with the elephant.
  • YEE SIN 7 Jan 2019
    I had the best time with the elephants. It was an amazing experience with the "Gentle Giants". If you love elephants you'll love this trip 💙
  • Carson 6 Jan 2019
    The tour was very enjoyable. Our tour guide Yaya has a wealth of knowledge about elephants and the camp itself. She’s also very professional and friendly. We spent a lot of time with the elephants, feeding them with some mud bath and river bath time with them. We’ve also learnt a lot more about elephants during this trip! Thank you!
  • Valerio Domenico 5 Jan 2019
    Nice staff. We joined the half day tour, so we didn't have any walking with the elephants in the jungle. It is more about to take pictures with the elephants. We would not recommend this tour if you don't have kids. Anyway if you don't have enough time to have an all day tour, it is better than nothing. Nice natural food.
  • HakKan 4 Jan 2019
    We have great fun with the elephants! & happy to see them playing in the nature without anyone riding on them! There was also a photographer who helped take photos to us, & we can download all photos from Dropbox free of charge!
